This riesling is a limited production wine crafted solely from grapes grown on Seneca Lake. Hints of orange blossoms on the palate, followed by a burst of fresh, ripe peaches and clementines on the palate, and a long, dry, refreshing finish. Only 38 cases were produced.

The Seneca East Vineyard is located on the eastern shores of Seneca Lake on gently sloping hillsides adjacent to some of the deepest parts of the lake. The lake provides temperature moderation which protects the vines from cold winter weather as well as spring and autumn frost. The vineyard is managed by 4th-generation grower John
Harvested fruit was whole cluster basket pressed and chilled. The wine was fermented in stainless steel tanks, and some batches were stopped before dryness in order to retain varietal character and vibrancy. The wine was then bottled under the Vino-Lok glass closure to preserve the essence of the wine.
Enjoy with pan-seared scallops over sautéed greens and wild rice, or a rustic savory tart topped with bacon, tomatoes and fontina cheese.
